Moore’s Spooky Snacks
Pumpkins, witches and ghosts, galore! Can you believe Halloween is just around the corner? Whether you’re trick-or-treating with the kids or throwing a Halloween bash, we’ve rounded up some festive recipes perfect for the occasion.
First, for a delicious appetizer or pre-trick-or-treating snack, shape the Moore’s Honey BBQ Chicken Cheeseball into a pumpkin. To do this, you’ll need to add one green pepper and black olives to your ingredient list. Once the cheeseball is chilled and ready to be served, simply cut off the top of the green pepper and place it on top of the cheeseball to be the pumpkin’s stem. Last but not least, cut the black olives in half and use them to make a Jack-O’-Lantern face!
8 strips Bacon, cooked and diced
6 Green Onions, chopped

1 Cup Cheddar Cheese, shredded
1 Cup Cheddar Cheese, shredded for outside coating (or you can substitute 1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans)
